Genetics and environment helped to create a 30-year journey into the darkness of sex, drugs, and alcohol, all of which stripped me of opportunities to succeed and rise out of my self-imposed hell. It took 30 years of trying to escape from reality to connect-the-dots to freedom, and to find hope sufficient to do better. It was about time.
My name is Beth H. For the purposes of my book, it was suggested I let you know who I really am, even though my pseudo-name is Harriet Hunter. Since my walk into recovery in 1999, I’ve had one primary purpose. To show others how they can achieve their miracles with a vision and determination to never ever go backwards one day at a time. A conduit of positivity, I strive to give others what worked for me and how they can be free from the bondage of self, regardless of their situation by using the 12-Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and sharing my experience, strength and hope.
My passion is to help others find hope. Over the course of my sobriety, I have worked with many women to find a peace within. I continue to facilitate meetings, bring hope to women incarcerated, and continue to sponsor both face-to-face and on line, encouraging and giving to others what has been so freely given to me over the years.
I am a member of Tallahassee’s Writing Association; Florida’s Writers Assocation, the Sisters of the Sentences Writers Group, (part of Fiction Among Friends group). In addition, I am a member of TWA and FWAs writing critique groups.
One common denominator that makes us equal, regardless of our experiences or journey, is our pain. Our pain is the same. It is this vision of equality that allows me to embrace and encourage others in and out of recovery. We are all children of a oneness. Please continue to come back often. Sooner or later, I hope you will see yourself in my blog posts.
